My left thumb hurts to grip a pencil, could be from painting so much, I don't know. My back hurts for months on end, and lifting anything over 20lbs seems to be a struggle. If you knew me, you would say, how is this possible? You have helped your husband build two homes have lifted more heavy things than any woman, you are such a work horse. But, I have lost all that muscle tone by sitting at my job 8hrs a day, driving 2hrs a day, and then painting for another 4hrs a day. OUCH!
So, now that I'm unemployed, and there is not a huge demand for pet portraits in the summer, here is my chance to turn my flab into fab! I have taken before pictures, ordered up a set of DVD's called Turbofire and dusted off the elliptical trainer. Weighed in at 183 lbs at 5 foot 7 inches - 50 years old soon to be 51. But life doesn't end at 50. I need to take control.
So, on my FB page I post pictures of the day, works in progress, and I'll now add my work in progress in my quest to lose 30lbs. I have always believed in sharing, so why not share this. Hopefully, by sharing I'll motivate myself and others to do what they want to do for themselves. Women are such givers, we tend to neglect ourselves.
If you have neglected yourself, join me in my quest for fitness, do something good for you!
